    Pros

    The Company policy enables great security for every individual. Full freedom in workplace. The company provides equal opportunity in terms choosing project and role.

    Cons

    Biggest challenge in this company is unrealistic performance evaluation, which further enables Managers to own the company and steal the opportunity & reputation of associates.

    Pros

    training, exposure, onsite opportunities and flexible timings

    Cons

    Office politics play a key rather than employee's aspirations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Technical roles can be increased and keep people motivated. Not everyone aspires for a sales job.

    Pros

    TCS , being a huge company, lets you do as much or as little work as you want / can get away with. Effort and result are not directly proportional always but due to the large nature of most accounts, very bad cases of preferential treatment or nepotism are not common. There are still a few good men out there. The very senior mgmt is inspirational and their old school values cannot be faulted.

    Cons

    TCS is a very middle-of-the-road company populated by somewhat petty, average minds. Not that it's a bad thing, because the huge majority of IT work done by the subcontinent's contractors is just that - average. Appraisals suck royally and lead to an exodus of competent people from the project and the company around the time ratings are announced. Compensation is not the best, but quite commensurate to the work. Personal growth depends largely on being at the right place at the right time or striking roots at an up and coming large account and tolerating several stints of boring work in the earlier years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I've been gone a long time but did anybody ultimately uphaul the in house project mgmt system Ux? The interface and speed were nightmares. It used to terrify us to fill timesheets at the end of the day - a 5 minute task took an hour and buses were missed.
